Set a maximum wage [Letter]

If we can't settle on a minimum wage, why don't we consider a maximum wage? If we are going to continue to regulate business, let's make it illegal for anyone in a company to make more than 10 times the wage of the lowest paid worker.

The company should then have no trouble meeting a higher minimum wage (or paying for employee health care insurance, for that matter). Is it really moral for a CEO to make 10,000 times more than one of the employees?
